Experimental data are summarized and an interpolation relation for the coefficient of friction of an electrically conducting flow of a fluid in a flat channel affected by a transverse magnetic field is obtained. A relation describing the diffusivity of momentum in the presence of the transverse magnetic field is proposed. The relation is used in calculations of the coefficients of friction and heat transfer based on the results of numerical solution of the equations of momentum and energy.
